Fuck means Fuck in German!

To my relief, fuck means fuck in German! I mean, how could I get by without my favorite word!? I don't know! Thank the Lord I don't have to! Tonight, Jenny and I went to a bar in downtown Bamberg and danced our asses off to Kanye and Rihanna!

I know, right!?!!!?!?!?!?!?!?????!!!???!!!

Nervous

I've got the nervous pants on today. I can't believe I am going all the way to Germany all alone! I mean, once I get there I won't be alone but on the way there I will be. Okay. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.

Whew.

Oh man I'm going to have some great pictures to post when I get back!!! :)

Hump Day

This week is flying by! I can't believe it is already Wednesday and I am going on vacation tomorrow! Woo hoo! I started packing last night. Packing is so annoying. I always think I am packing too much or too little, or the wrong things. Oh well. It can't be that serious.

Last night we got out of class an hour early! OMG I was so happy when he said he was done lecturing. It was music to my ears. So I went to the pet store and got an automatic feeder for my aquarium and then went home! It was great!

Well, not much interesting to talk about today other than that....

What a weekend!

Wow. Well last weekend was so much fun! OMG the funniest thing happened on Friday night. Alice ended up spending the night, and after I went to bed and had been asleep for about an hour or so, I ended up having a nightmare and I woke up screaming! It was hilarious. About 5 minutes later Alice came in my room and said someone was screaming and we should go see if they need help. I was like, well, it was me. It was the most hilarious thing and I am still laughing about it! We ended up watching About a Boy and it was really cute. I liked it alot. They cut some stuff out that was in the book but I guess that happens sometimes and I would rather them do that then have a movie that is 3 hours long!

Saturday night a group of us went out to the Cheesecake Factory and then to MCCXXIII to celebrate my birthday early (this year I am having 2 weeks of birthday celebrations lol). It was so good. I was so full at the restaurant that I didn't even eat any cheesecake! Then at MCCXXIII my friends surprised me by reserving a VIP table! It was so sweet! It was wall to wall people in there too so I was really, really glad that we had it. The only thing that stunk was that the DJ I am obsessed with just happened to not be there that night! I don't know why. We still had a really great time though. :)

My friends got me some really thoughtful birthday gifts. Alice got me a tea pot/tea set with special loose tea that is actually whole flowers! The flowers are dried and when you brew the tea it opens up like a flower inside the tea pot! Jessi got me a travel journal, which is going to be so awesome to use on my trip. It has pockets and places to put pictures and everything. Jade got me a really cool lip gloss set from Sephora (the good stuff). OMG I am so spoiled!!! :)

Well now this week I am just preparing for my trip and the anticipation is killing me! I love it though. I can't wait. I really cannot believe it is already here. It seems like just yesterday I bought the tickets. Tonight I am going to start packing and getting things ready to go! :)

Long Day for a Friday

Even though today is going to be along day because of class tonight, I am still in a good mood because it is FRIDAY. I think the reason I get so excited about Friday is that I know I get to sleep in the next day. I think sleeping in is one of my favorite things to do ever.

Tonight after class, Alice and I are going to get California Tortilla burritos for dinner. OMG their honey lime burrito is like a little slice of heaven. I love it. We're going to get them to go and then go to my apartment and watch either About a Boy or Little Women, depending on what we are in the mood for. About a Boy is based on a book, which I have read and really liked, so I am looking forward to the movie a lot. I've never read Little Women, but maybe if I like the movie I might be inspired to do so. I hate to say it but sometimes I have a hard time reading the classics, I guess because I feel like most times the writing style is hard to follow. I read 3/4 of Great Expectations and stopped because I was annoyed by it.

Oh and I can't remember if I said this but I finished the book club book, the Kommandant's Girl, and it was so good! I couldn't put it down. Do you ever feel sad when a book ends, because it is over? That's how I felt about that one. I can't wait for our next meeting because there are some pretty controversial issues that I am sure we are going to have a great time talking about.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

When I logged into Yahoo today I saw this article about the symbolism behind some of the most popular flowers. I thought it was interesting.

What was also interesting is that sunflowers symbolize "pure thoughts." Ha ha! What symbolizes naughty thoughts I wonder?!

Bury that shiznit.

Got an old relationship that has ended and needs to be laid to rest? Check out Relationship Obituaries, and bury that shiznit, once and for all. I thought this site was appropriate for Valentine's Day! LOL. I especially love the one that ends in "you'll miss my amazing bj's!"

Oh man thank the Lord it is Thursday. I say this every Thursday. Because that means tomorrow is Friday. Although, tomorrow is not going to feel much like a Friday because I have class. My prof had to reschedule one of our Tuesday classes that he missed, and he picked Friday. Wonderful. Afterwards I am sooooo going to enjoy staying in and getting some much needed rest! Alice and I are going to get food and watch a movie.

Saturday I am going with Alice and Jessi to some animal shelters because Alice wants to adopt a pet. Then Saturday night I am going out for an early birthday celebration! I'm excited. Because guess where I am going to be on my birthday?! Europe!! Woo hoo!!! :)

Some People Make It Very Difficult to Be Nice

I was informed today that somebody complained that everytime they walk by my desk, I am reading a book or doing something not work related. Are you f-ing kidding me? This is so infuriating. About 99% of work days I happen to eat lunch at my desk, during which I will read a novel or do something that is not work related. If I can't read a novel while I am eating my lunch, that is ridiculous. I guess, do people want me to start leaving every day for lunch so they stay out of my grill? Which is totally ridiculous as well because if I want to eat my f-ing lunch at my f-ing desk while reading my f-ing book every day, then I will.

1. Why do people find it necessary to always be up in my bid-ness?
2. Why are people that pathetic, sad, and bored with their own lives that they care enough to complain that they see me reading a novel every day at work?
3. Do people need more to do to keep them busy, so they don't feel like they need to be a hall monitor regulating everyone's tasks and habits?
4. I sit in a cube. That means someone had to make an acutal effort to walk by my desk to see what I am doing = even more sad and pathetic.
5. If I saw someone reading, playing a game, or doing whatever else that wasn't work related - I wouldn't give a shit! I am not that petty and immature to even care what people are doing and how they spend their time! That is between them and their manager!
6. One thing that I did not even think of when I was in college about being an engineer and working in an office - immature, petty, ridiculous, nosy people and OFFICE POLITICS!
7. Office politics make me want to jump of a bridge. But then I remember that no idiot is worth that.

Oh and I have an exam tonight for which I have had no time to study! Fun times!

We Can't Do Anything Right!!!

OMG read this article that I saw on CNN.com about fake sugar. Okay, I have heard this before and never read about it because I really didn't want to hear it. But I guess here it is and I can't pretend it doesn't exist anymore. So wtf are we supposed to do now? Ugh.

Well, I had a super sweet weekend and I am sad it is over. I hate Mondays. Ugh. They suck. I start getting really depressed on Sunday nights because I have to come back to work on Monday. It sucks. Alice and I decided that we are going to possibly start going to dinner together on Sunday nights to hopefully try and alleviate some of the depression that we feel every week. I hope it helps.

Alright, sorry I'm a Debbie Downer today. I have to go study now.

I'm Waiting By the Phone. Waiting for You to Call Me Up and Tell Me I'm Not Aloooooooonnnne.

I miss 90s rock. I really do. I heard Soul Asylum on the radio this morning on the way to work and it made me feel all nostalgic for 8th grade. So, I found a live version of it for you on YouTube so you could listen to it and feel nostalgic as well.



Did I already say that I am sooooooooo glad that today is Friday!? It sucks that I have to stay at work until 4:45 but I just didn't get into work early enough so here I am. Oh well. I think I am going to make dinner for Alice tonight before we go out. I love cooking. Man, every time I say that it surprises me. Ha ha.

This is the link to the Luray Caverns, where I am going this weekend! :) I have wanted to go ever since I moved here so I am totally excited! According to the website, they are the largest and most popular caverns in Eastern America. I'm gonna see some stalactites and stalagmites. Woo hoo!

Thank God it's Thursday!

Oh man I am so glad that today is Thursday because that means tomorrow is FRIDAY! Woo hoo! Whew it's been a long week.

Yesterday it was 70 degrees here! Can you believe that? In February! I was so happy because that meant I got to run outside. It was wonderful and I felt like a million bucks afterwards. I ended up cleaning my entire apartment and doing some decorating and it was wonderful. And I got the DVD box set that I ordered in the mail from Amazon. I got season 3 of the X-Files, my most favorite show ever and I don't care if I am a science fiction nerd.


Look at this poor little kitty that has 5 legs! They removed the two that the little guy didn't use! The poor thing looks distraught. :-\


Oh and also they are rehabilitating the 47 dogs that were seized from Michael Vick's dog fighting ring. I hate that guy.

Nothing to Talk About

My least favorite day of the week - Tuesday. Work all day, class all night. Ugh.

I really want to just go to sleep.

Rough Start

I got off to a rough start this morning. I was so exhausted when I woke up and could have slept for about 5 million more hours. I am going to bed early tonight. But oh man my Monday just got so much better! I just checked my email and my professor had sent an email this morning saying that we can skip two of our homework problems that are due tomorrow. I am so happy because I had no idea how to do them, and I think I am pretty much done with the other ones. Thank the Lord. My stress level just went WAY down because of that email. Whew.

I had a really awesome weekend last weekend. Friday night I watched the Soup. I love that show so much OMG. We laughed so hard at it. Then I watched another movie called Next with Nicholas Cage. It was pretty good. I liked the ending. It's about a guy that can see into the future. Saturday we bummed around most of the day and then I went out with Jade to MCCXXIII again. OMG it was so fun! The DJ that is there on Saturday nights is so great. We danced the ENTIRE time AGAIN! I love that. Sunday I bummed around all day again (man, with that much bumming around you would think that I would be well rested today!). I went to Old Navy and got a really cute sweater, which I am wearing today and I love it! Oh and I went to California Tortilla and I had the bestest burrito ever in the world. It was like heaven. And can you believe that upset last night with the Super Bowl! I usually get bored after about 5 minutes of football but even I thought that was a good game!

Okay wow I just reread what I typed and that is seriously a rambling paragraph! Ha ha I am totally leaving it like that. Okay, so now for a joke and a cute picture:

My Living Will
Last night my best friend and I were sitting in the den and I said to her, "I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle to keep me alive. That would be no quality of life at all, If that ever happens, just pull the plug."

So she got up, unplugged the computer, and threw out my wine.

She's such a bitch.

This is getting ridiculous!

This morning I was on my way into work and there was an announcement on the radio that there were tons and tons of schools closed! It was only raining! WTF? I couldn't believe it! I mean, we are supposed to get some bad weather later on today but honestly! I just can't even imagine what all of the parents do when school is closed like every single day? Do they just take vacation time since they have to stay home with their kids? I guess they must have to, and that would really tick me off!

Oh man I am so glad that it is Friday. I cleaned my apartment top-to-bottom last night so that means I get to be lazy this weekend. It is going to be great. My mom mailed me the Christmas gift that Jackie bought for me. It is a spiral wall sconce thingie. So I am going to rearrange some things and hang it over my fireplace. I am excited because I really like it. I have the best best friend ever! :)

This morning I did not want to get out of bed because it was cold, and raining, and that is the best time to be in bed, cozy under the blankets, and sleeping. Sigh. That would have been so nice to stay in bed. Oh well. Instead I am here slaving away at work. Just kidding, there is nobody here (probably because they had to stay home with their kids!), and it is so quiet. I like it.

Alright this post is boring. Have a good weekend!
